Day 8 in the 31 Days of Angelosity!

Good morning, friends! How is everyone today? All is well here, except for the fact that I have less than one week until the ball I am going to and no mice to make me a dress! Where does one find a nice formal gown? I am taking my friend Shelley with me tomorrow to look, not only for a second opinion, but also because she is the queen of bargain hunters!! Hopefully we'll find a dress. I have never been to anything formal. Yikes!
On to today's sketch! I was sketching cards the other day and looking for ideas while we were watching TV. (I like to multi-task...makes me feel productive.) Anyway, I handed my sketch pad to hubby and he drew a sketch! So, this one is an original Kevin sketch! I've got another one too, but I'll spread them out a bit. For some reason, this one wasn't exactly easy for me, but since I love paisley, I like how it turned out. heeheehee
Here is your sketch!

Number 8 already!

Don't forget to come back and add a link to your card should you decide to play!

And here is the card!

Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Words of Wisdom, Paisley background
Ink~ Choc Chip, Pretty in Pink

And what am I adding to the treasure box today? We have 24 days left until my birthday. How old am I? Hmm.... Tell you what... that's what you can comment about today. Take a guess. The first person to guess how old I will be on Nov 7th correctly will get an RAK from me! All of you will still be included in the draw for all 31 cards this month.
So today, I add 24 quotes!

I love using quotes on my cards! Vellum, card stock, DP... it doesn't matter. I love a good quote. So here I have cut out 24 different ones for you!
31 Shaped Eyelets
30 Decorative Brads
29 Envelopes
28 Colorful Buttons
27 Glittery Chipboard Letters
26 eyelets
25 Punches and Die cuts

I better get ready for church. We're going out to lunch with friends afterwards. I hope you all have a great Sunday!

What a sweet card! You do wonderful work. This sketch is really cute!

Allison said...

Hmm...I will guess 31!

Michelle said...

I'm not very good at guessing age even when I know the person. I'll take a guess. 39??

Rose Ann said...

It's difficult to tell from your picture, so I won't embarrass

Your card is very pretty! Great sketch!

Misplaced Texans said...

Ok... If I post your real age, will you get mad? (38) Unless my counting is wrong! I think I remember what bible study we were doing when you turned 33 (the same age as Jesus~during the study, that is) but I can't remember exactly what year that was... (was it before or after Riley?)

I think that since Kevin did this sketch he should do a card, too!!! That would be a card to frame!!!! Don't ya think??? I'd love to see a Kevin original to go along with the original Kevin sketch!

Brenda said...

Way to go hubby...great sketch!! My guess is 37, although it really doesn't matter how old you are! Just celebrate with JOY for the rest of the journey!

For a formal- if you have a David's Bridal in town go there. They have formal wear in all colors and for a great price.

Yeah Kevin, great sketch.


Gina Wrona said...

mmmmmmm How 'bout 38?

Very nice sketch challenge...

cskidspraise said...

I am guessing 38. I know how old you were when we worked together, but I can't remember what year it was. So...Way to go Kevin. I really like the sketch.

Linda SS said...

The card is beautiful and compliments the powerful words of Joni Eareckson-Tada.

Misplaced Texans said...

Here is my go on Sketch #8. The sketch is really growing on me! Way to go Kevin!

Becky said...

I have to buy gowns all the time. Macy's usually has nice ones and good deals sometimes. Thanks for sharing the love girl! You are on my blogroll :)

Patti Gingrich said...

Your card turned out great! It's so soft and pretty. The sketch does look challenging though. I'm going to take a guess at your age...with it being the 31 days of Angelosity, I'd say 31, but I know you have a son that recently got married, so I'm going to guess 40.

Monica-FC said...

I am going o say 40. I love this sketch and is your hubby going to help you with the sketches here?? that would be great. Monica

Deborah said...

Do you have a Nordstrom Rack near you? Ebay designer deals! Love your sketches! I am missing the fun, but enjoy seeing your sketches all over the place! You are doing great! Deb

Peggy said...

I should know this. But I am not sure of my answer! Are you turning 39 this year?

I am really enjoying your sketches. I am kind of jumping all over as I try to get them done. I used this sketch to make my son his birthday card. Love your sketches.
